The Collingdale Borough municipal building is located on the corner of MacDade Boulevard and Clifton Avenue. The colonial structure, constructed mainly from brick, was built in the late 1930s.
Formerly the home of Collingdale High School, the building now serves a variety of uses including the municipal government offices, district judge court, the Collingdale Community School (Delaware County Intermediate Unit), and the borough Community Center. In the late 1990s to about 2003, the building also served as a branch of the Delaware County Community College.
The Community Center hosts a number of programs and events. Activities include Alumni Association events, Collingdale Athletic Club events, and senior citizen activities. The building is fully handicapped accessible and recent improvements include the installation of drop ceilings and a new central air heating system that serves most of the building. Also, the windows were replaced in 2005.
The Community Center Park is also located adjacent to the borough property. This park consists of a football field, two baseball/softball fields and a well lit walking/running track encircling these fields. The Borough Maintenance, Sanitation, and Highway Garages are also located on this property.
